Dupreeh doesnt have the stats
Or the mvps
To be ranked above device
cold(statwise still the same)
rest of astralis
krimz(shitt he bed second half)
autimatic(same but got fucked by his team)
sunny(didnt peak like the rest but always above average and consistent)
tarik and stewie gonna be up there simply because major placements, tarik probably higher bc mvp
Twistzz hasn't been consistent enough across the whole year to be top 5.
As of right now (still few more months left):
1. s1mple, 5 MVPs and otherwordly stats
2. dev1ce, 4 MVPs and EVPs
3. NiKo, 1 MVP and a truckload of EVPs (at more than 70% of events he played)
4. electronic, amazing stats and EVPs
5. dupreeh/Magisk, I'd give to the edge to dupreeh due to an MVP at Pro League, but both can take the 5th spot tbf
6. NAF, great stats and EVPs
This is more or less your Top 5 of 2018 right now.
Ohh yes another stupid "bestp player of 2018 Thread" and again Simple is on top.
No Simple isnt the best player of the year, he havent won any big event other than maybe ESL One Cologne.
Navi and Simple cracks when they get under pressure. simple was nowhere in the Major final against Astralis, you dont get to be the best player if u dont perform aginst the best.
And the other CS is a teambased game, it stupid to try pick a best player, because dont matter if you are good and the rest of your team suck.
Pick the best team and move on, so far its Astralis who dominated most of the year, what the future brings we dont know, but for now Simpe and the rest has lot to prove for the scene.
5. dupreeh / Magisk
Simple top 1? LOL, 0 major and 12-22 in the major final.
Device top 1maybe.
device 1... simple doesnt deserve it, no major and not enough tourny wins
Top 5 is fairly easy to make for me. But then it get's really hard to rank the players
